Spotify celebrates International Women’s Day by running the numbers.

For the third year running, Rihanna has been named the world’s top streamed woman on the music platform, ahead of Katy Perry, Beyoncé and more. It appears that she outperforms her counterparts with men around the world, as Beyoncé and Lana Del Rey perform better both in the United States and with women listeners.

Plus, even after taking her catalog off Spotify, Taylor Swift still cracks the top tens; we’ll see if that changes next year. The lists are below, via The Hollywood Reporter.

Rihanna has spent the last few days previewing her forthcoming album in clips and commercials on her Instagram account. We’re guessing she didn’t read our list of the things the music world should have ditched years ago.
